Vilma Santos Supports ABS-CBN’s Film Restoration Project

Star for all Seasons Vilma Santos showed her full support for ABS-CBN’s film restoration project after she graced the special “V x 3” screening held at the University of the Philippines Film Institute (UPFI) Cine Adarna recently, wherein three of her most remarkable and award-winning films were showcased for the first time in high definition format.

The event, organized by ABS-CBN Film Archives in partnership with UPFI, screened the digitally restored and re-mastered copies of “Anak,” “Kapag Langit ang Humatol,” and “Bata, Bata, Paano Ka Ginawa?”

“It’s a such an overwhelming feeling to again watch films that you are truly proud that were made even better now that it’s in HD format. ABS-CBN is giving viewers, especially the younger generation, this great opportunity to witness these restored titles, which I believe truly mirrors the lives of Filipinos,” said Gov. Vi.

Aside from Gov. Vi, original directors of the said films Rory Quintos, Laurice Guillen, and Chito Rono also graced the special screening together with “Bata, Bata” leading man Albert Martinez and co-star Cherrie Pie Picache, director Olivia Lamasan, and Star Creatives head Malou Santos.

The solid Vilmanians also weren’t left behind as they flocked to the Cine Adarna and lined up as early as morning just to show their support for their idol.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN Film Archives head and the brain behind the restoration project, Leo Katigbak, felt very overwhelmed by the very warm reception given by Gov. Vi and even by the general public.
“It feels great to hear the thunderous applause from the audience. Just like a blockbuster hit complete with screaming fans. But it’s more rewarding when the audience shares their thoughts and opinions on the restored films. This shows they are already invested in what we are doing and this response has been recurring more with our recent screenings. We are touching their hearts and minds little by little,” Leo explained.

Next to be showcased on the big screen is the restored version of the classic film “T Bird at Ako” that marked the first team up of VIlma Santos and Superstar Nora Aunor.

    Ano ba problema ng mga noranians at walang magawa kundi mag bash. Halatang inggit na inggit sa tinatamasang success ni Ate Vi. Samantalang yun idolo nila ligwak na sa kamalasan. Wala ng mainstream movie at yun indie movie na barya barya na lang talent fee niya ang di maipalabas sa mga sinehan. At kung ipalabas naman ay napu pull out pa. Ay naku SUPER LAOS na kais si Nora at di na yan makakabawi pa kahit bigyan pa ng isang truck na awards yan.

    Between Ate Vi ang Nora …mas laos na si Nora noon pa 80s pa lng nilampaso na sya ni Ate Vi !!! Hanggang ngayon andyan pa rin si ate vi . si nora hanggang indie films , laging first day …last day ang film nya… Si Ate Vi hanggang ngayon may mainstream movies pa.

  8. Queen Vi is the greatest actress of all time !!!

  9. Walang award kamo? Di nyo nman mapapaniwala ang nakararami…dahil alam ng karamihan at marami paring taga supports is Vilma. Si Nora isang araw Lang as sinehan ung pelikula full out aged. Kakatawa ka. Hahahaha…..

  10. Fans na naman ng baluga yang naiingit at naninira kay Vilma kasi si Ate Vi nasa limelight pa ang Negra Superlaos talaga!

  11. toink!!!! hollywood ba kamu…. tanong nyo kay anne curtis yan hehehehe…. sabi ng GMA…#1 daw sila nationwide toink!!!! Kayo na,!kayo na talaga… ang pinaka!! pinaka sinungaling… na istasyon… CDO nga lang ang layo ehhh..,

    ABS-CBN=60% viewers
    TV5=25% viewers
    GMA=15%…….. Mas marami pa nanunood ng tv5 kaysa inyo…. kaya please lang wag na kayo mag ilusyon…..

    #just sayin/katotohanan lang po!!!

    tama ka raul! Laos na si Vilma! Ang SIKAT na ngayon ay nasa GMA! Gaya nina Thea Tolentino, Barbie Forteza, Marian Rivera, Kris Bernal, Bea Binene, Louise Delos Reyes, Mark Herras. Sila ang papalit sa trono nina Nora, Vilma, Maricel at Sharon! Dahil basta GMA artists, SIKAT at WORLDCLASS! Fact! Just sayin’..

  13. I love this idea. I restore na lang yung mga old movies kaysa i remake. BTW, @Raul, she doesn’t need another award because she has plenty. Maka pang bash ka lang. Baklang to.

  14. Laos na kc si Vilma, wala ng award kaya Kung ano ano na lang gimmick Ang pinag gagawa

  15. Wow gusto ko yan 👍👏👏👏

  16. Ang GMA Films kaya kailan mag-restore ng mga old films? Sabagay sobrang lugi na sila, ano pa aasahan natin…tsk..tsk
